Hi all

 

i have rotated a site plan to fit on sheet, fixed the upside down text by ticking off keep readable but is there a way to fix the dimensions which are also upside down? i know i can make a dim style with small text and add text over but this defeats the whole purpose of rotating a view.

thanks for any input

It sounds like you are still using CAD methods and you have not yet learned the power of REVIT. Did you rotate the plan or rotate the sheet?  I think you rotated the sheet.

 

Goto your view and make sure yourview is cropped and the crop region is visible.  Click on the crob region boundry and select the rotate icon.  Now rotate yourview to what would be correct when you place it on your sheet.  All of the dimensions and text will remain readable.

Brilliant. Thank you!! Rarely need to ever rotate things but did not know this. Smile

The best thing is that you don't need to make a new view title type that doesn't rotate!
